Marguerite Elizabeth Spinney
Marguerite Elizabeth (Hawkins) Spinney left this world on December 23,
2019, but not our hearts. She was born January 25th, 1915 to Rupert
and Ida (Beech) Hawkins of Pennfield NB. She was a devoted wife to the
late Stanley Joseph Spinney and loving mother daughter: Rebecca Brown
of Blacks Harbour NB; son: David and Beth Hatt of Utopia NB; adored
grandmother to grandson: Derek (Jodi) Hatt; granddaughters: Dawn Marie
Glennie and Krista (Kyle) Beaudry both of St. George, Tina (Robert)
McCullough of Bocabec NB and Lisa (Douglas) Stuart of Pennfield NB;
many great and great-great-grandchildren; several nieces, and nephews
and we can’t forget how she was a surrogate mother and caregiver to
many many more.
In addition to her parents and husband, Marguerite was predeceased by
two brothers: Ken and Don Hawkins; two sisters: Madge Paul and Laura
Spear; son in law: Clayton Brown; Granddaughter: Katrina Lynn Brown;
and great-great-grandchildren: Carter and Adriana Joncas.
Marguerite lived her life in the Service of her Lord and family and
doing for others as best she could. She had several cooking positions
with local area restaurants throughout her years and at times in one
of Stanley’s logging camps. But the place where should could be found
most of the time was working side by side with Stanley whether it was
on the farm in Blacks Harbour, a blueberry or hay field, a logging
camp in the woods or one of their many gardens which feed friends and
family alike. Her greatest joy were her grandchildren and being able
to teach and pass on to them the best parts of her, and that was her
gift to us.
The family would like to thank the staff of Ridgeview Manor and Fundy
Nursing Home for their compassionate care given to Marguerite in her
A celebration of Marguerite’s life will be held from the St. George

fellowship and refreshments in the church basement. The family will
